To protect the children from the virus, the Department of Education is implementing distance learning to continue education without physically requiring the children to attend classes at school. However, in order for this to be effective, the students would need to have gadgets and internet connection to access online classes which is a privilege that most households and schools in our country do not have.
Surrounded by big mountains and situated in one of the farthest communities of Mayantoc, Tarlac, it takes almost two hours by truck or 6 hours by foot to get to Labney Elementary School. Thus, it is no wonder that just like many rural schools, Labney ES is also adapting another method that’s not as impossible as online learning.
One of the solutions that schools in rural areas like Labney, have found is modular teaching, where they’d have to create modules and print them so that the students do not have to access the internet just to get their learning materials.
But while this may be the more feasible route, Labney ES is still in need of help as the school lacks the needed school supplies. That is why I am initiating this campaign to raise school materials and supplies needed to create the modules. Through this, we will not only be able to help the 9 teachers who continue to serve Labney ES but also the 190 Aeta students from kindergarten to Grade 6.
Be part of this campaign! Purchase a set of school items for the teachers and the students.
